Elemental Inspiration for January

 Happy New Year!

Hi, it's Kathy here with the first card dare for 2015 and the first in a brand new series of First Friday challenges - yes, we know that technically it's the second Friday of January this time, but from February on it will be the first Friday each month

"Elemental Inspiration"

Here's how it works;
The DT will take turns to choose and post a picture - it could be a photo, a piece of artwork, or maybe a little montage of  bits and pieces we like.  
Each of these pictures will have a variety of "elements" that we hope will inspire you to get crafting - and we'd like you to use a minimum of THREE.of the elements you see to make a card  
 For instance  the colour combo could be one element, the LO another, and then there may be a landscape, items in the picture, a quote, stitching lines, the media used to create the picture - all sorts of things.  
We will add a little list of suggested elements each month, but you're bound to see more things you can use

So here is my Elemental Inspiration Picture for January, a beautiful piece of artwork from a fabulous blog: Victoria's Art Visions.

Victoria's Art Visions
Here are my Element Suggestions for this picture: 
 colours, stitching, hearts, quote, vintage girl image, parasol, layout, vertical panels and layers  
Remember you need to use at least THREE different elements and the colour combination can only count as ONE of those elements

I've also  made a little sketch of the Layout which could be used as one of your elements
So that's your challenge this week and I can't wait to see how you use this fabulous picture to make your own Elementally Inspired card.  It would be especially good if you could add a lost of the elements you used to your blog post so we can all see where your inspiration came from

Here's how the Team rose to the challenge this week

Kathy  (I've used the colours, the hearts, the "stitching lines and the style of the cut-out words for the sentiment)
